    Slotted the pin.
    Polished the feedramp and chamber.
    Re-crowned the barrel and polished the crown.
    Polished the contact surface of the hammer
    De-burred a few spots on the frame.

    the finish scheme looks good.

    any reason for slotting the pin and does the pin rotated when shooting?

    was there any damage to the crown?

    The guy that did the work for me said his Girlfriends P3's pin would work itself out after one or two mags, so what he did was slot it just under the head and then slotted the head...it seats itself more securely now and all you do is rotate it 180 degrees and pull out like normal.  I thought it was a neat lil idea, works good.

    As for the crown...he knows what he's doin, its nice and smooth and looks really good. The few mags that I did get to shoot shot real good.

    Nice looking finish. Kinda makes the little gun stand out a bit too.
  7. Very nice looking....

    I like that idea!

    I have seen this mod before.... if I recall there was a problem in the past with the pins walking out on some of the Kel-Tecs... but it has never been an issue with any of mine.  It still seems to me that it would be benificial to slot (groove) where the sping grabs the pin, then slot the head to indicate the proper orientation.  [reason]fix [/quote][/reason]

    Nice Job! I keep meaning to give GunKote or DuraCoat refinishing a try. Maybe when it gets warmer. My garage is my shop.
